In brief: Provigil and Nuvigil

These drugs help symptomatically, but studies have shown that people with cfs are relatively deconditioned.
If this is applicable to you, you will be more fatigued during any exertional activity. Excercise is the best medicine.

In brief: Yes

As with fibromyalgia, patients need to optimize their sleep, balance hormones, treat any chronic infections, balance their nutrition & get off the simple sugar, carbohydrate kick and exercise as they are able.
Combined with medications as needed for symptom relief, this should improve most cfs patients.

In brief: Find & Rx cause

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a multifactorial consequence of hormonal, immune system and nervous system dysfunction resulting from genetic predispositions and dietary and environmental insults.
These factors impair the patient's ability to produce energy and they end up chronically fatigued. There are numerous internal & external stressors that can contribute to this syndrome. Find & rx.
